Meet the Kids: Edwin


10-year old Edwin is a camper at Hale Reservation through a partnership with Dorchester’s Bird Street Community Center.  In 2015, he passed the deep end test giving him some freedom in the water.  He also made strides with the Leap of Faith on the ropes course.  “I got scared but I got to the top.  I didn’t stand on the top, I told them that I wanted to get off.”  When his feet touched the ground, Edwin explained the “Challenge by Choice" philosophy.    “I choose how far I want to go.  But if I get up there and change my mind, that’s my choice. Next year I will stand on the top.”
